I need a critique on how my horses hooves are looking. I trim them myself and would like to know if Im on the right track, and if Im not, what I need to do to improve.
Chloe has always had problems with seedy toe. Its not severe, and it comes and goes (usually clears up during dry weather). But it will always come back, and so I am worried it is caused by the hooves not being properly ballanced. And recently Nudge has developed a crack in one of his front hooves. They are not spreading anymore as we are having a dry spell and Im also treating them with disolved epsom salts to flush out the dirt and little rocks and kill any bacteria that may be there.
Little Moey has them too, although much more severe, and has had the problem for a long time prior to when I started trimming him.
Im looking for advice from people with actual experience in the area.
I know the pics arent the best, but it was all I could do at that time of nite.
Clo bears fronts.
